Unfortunately, due to the Covid19 pandemic, the Pemi-Baker Beekeepers’ Assn. Executive Board has made the decision to cancel the 2021 Bee School.
We felt that we could not meet the required guidelines put forth by the CDC to keep the “new bees” safe.
We welcome you to join our club. We are currently holding our monthly meetings via zoom and welcome all newcomers with the shared interest of keeping bees. In our monthly meetings we talk about many different aspects of keeping honeybees and hive management from month to month. We also have mentors who are more than happy to assist in a “hands on” manner while maintaining Covid safe protocols.
There are some bee clubs throughout the state that will be offering zoom bee schools. Please refer to the New Hampshire Beekeepers Association website: https://nhbeekeepers.org if interested.
Usually, the PBBA Bee School is a 4 day course running from January to February of each year and is geared towards beginning beekeeping. We offer such topics as bee biology, hive management, care and upkeep of your apiary, your tools and equipment, etc.
WHEN: Saturdays starting on the last Saturday in January for 4 weeks from 9am-2pm
WHERE: The school will be held at the American Legion Hall, Post 15 at 37 Main Street in Ashland, NH.
